Supporting someone with RED-S can be challenging. Often, there is a degree of ambiguity surrounding the signs and symptoms, but even when the issue is obvious, finding the right support can take time.

As someone who looks out for an athlete, you are positioned to aid in prevention and support recovery. Check out our info pages for more details about RED-S and scroll down for advice on how to help.

Not everyone with RED-S experiences disordered eating or an eating disorder, but it mat be helpful for members of their support team to learn more. Athletes are 2-3 times more likely to develop an eating disorder than the general population.

We hope you find the tools and advice below helpful, but please let us know if there's anything else you'd like to see.
